What a load of old rubbish. If you have a dog it NEEDS exercise. To not walk it when it is raining is downright cruel to the dog and IMHO you are not a responsible enough person to be allowed near a dog. My collie is 13 years old and I can honestly say that I have taken her for a walk three times a day every day of the year (apart from the very rare ocassions when she is in the kennels for a few days). I'm very nearly 75 years of age by the way! That's what looking after a dog means , it's called commitment the same word I would use for working for a living and not relying on people like me to pay their taxes so you can have a lazy life of ease. You should be thoroughly ashamed of yourself. How do you manage to hold your head up when you walk the streets of Battle?

The Indepence Day is to us Finns very important, reminding us how close it came to lose our freedom. Two times, both in 1917 and 1939-45. The text below is an immigrants sentimental rant, you can stop reading now if that kind of stuff disturbs you.

Finland never was a sovereign country, per se. We were a part of Kingdom of Sweden until Sweden lost us to Russian Csar in 1809, in what is today called as Finnish War. From those days we still are officially a bilingual country, Swedish language having an official status beside Finnish. Finland became an autonomous Grand Duchy in impearilistic Russian Empire. When Lenin was causing major disturbance in Russia, the Csar had so much other things in his mind the Finnish nationalists decided the time was right to declare Finland independent. Surprisingly, Lenin won in St. Petersburg but he too had so much other things to worry he accidentally accepted the Finnish declaration of independence, as one of the first of his foreign policy decicions after the revolution. So, the independent and sovereign Republic of Finland was born on 6th of December 1917.

Living next to the Great Bear was not easy, especially considering Finland has almost thousand kilometers border with Russia. When World War II began, we had basically no alternatives; we allied with nazi Germany. Luckily our government very soon realized that whatever happens, we have to change our allies. The rest of the war we faught a comical war; allied with West, against nazis, but at the same time fighting against Soviet Union. As such, Finland is the only country that fought most of the war against nazis and (one of) allied forces. Reason is clear, Stalin could not accept that a west country had it's border only 50 kilometers from Leningrad. He demanded the eastern part of Finland as a buffer zone.

The war ended, we lost about 10% of our soil. We had to give Karelia and Petsamo, the eastern parts of our country to Stalin, to keep him on the "right side of the border". But: in the WWII, there were only three European capital cities of war participating countries never occupied by the enemy: London, Moscow and our Helsinki. Finland was the first country (and quite a long time the only one) who paid the war compensations to the last penny. Finland is the only country bordering Soviet Union who could keep the western, capitalistic system and didn't fall under the Soviet umbrella after the war.

Both my grandfathers fought against both Germans and Russians. I'm proud of our independence and my granfathers' part in that. We are only 5.3 million people, a half of that of New York City or Berlin. We are not very well known, normally people know only Nokia, Linus Torvalds, Jean Sibelius and some ice-hockey players or rally and Formula 1 drivers. What people seem not to know is that since 50's, Finnish troops have been an essential part of almost every UN peace keeping operation, or that our former presidents have had an essential role when negotiating peace in Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Namibia, Sumatra (former region of Indonesia) and other parts of this globe of ours.

Don't misunderstand me: I love my German wife and family very much and have chosen to live an immigrants life here, rather than in my Finland. I love my life and my home. It is my own choice, based on my bottomless love to my beautiful wife Angelika. My home is where Angie is, no question of that. But as in every home in Finland, or in every Finnish home abroad, tonight at exactly 6PM I light those traditional blue and white candles by every window at home. To remember how close it was some 60+ years ago, to thank the fathers of my mother and father for fighting for my, my childrens and my grandchildrens freedom, to show how proud I am when I can say "I am a Finn!", and to remember home is not a place, it is a state of mind. My home is hear in Germany, but part of my heart can not and will not forget my origins.

I must say that if I saw somebody photographing one of my cars they would at least be down a camera and more than likely be attending A&E.
